    Hello Neyvan - I recall this spot from my own trip to Montevideo a few years ago, and in fact I took some shots from almost that same spot, though not quite the same direction. You had I think a nicer day than I did though, as I was there in winter. Nice juxtaposition between the boats and the somewhat blocky architecture beyond. Thanks!

    Hi Ann - still a few Route 66 shots showing up I see; glad I did not miss them all. Love this one - despite the crumbling building it is amazing to see how well the sign has held up! It looks new and clean, with letters that are still bright! Thanks for shining a light into this little abandoned corner...

    Hey Mike - glad to see you are still around this place. And still creating sci fi art out of architecture - but for the reflections this could be a shot from TRON!

    On the cropping, I do not think the reflection is so distracting as to take away from the flow of the rest of the shot, and in fact I think cropping would reduce the leading lines to the point of losing impact. The lines in the reflection run parallel, and actually back up the lines of the building itself, so I think you made the right call with this version.

    Hello Ana! A beautiful photo from Carnival in Lazarim - hopefully soon I will post some shots from Carnival in Panama which I recently saw. Very different than what I see from your shots in Portugal. This one is great, focusing on the detail of the burning mask. Outstanding fire photography, from the flames themselves to the tiny, barely visible sparks at bottom. Thanks!

    Hello Mesut - here in Boston we are far removed from the first snow of the year, and are quite tired of it as we are about to break our all-time snowiest season record! So it is hard to remember when covered in the stuff that it can be quite beautiful, but you have done that here with this minimal but perfectly managed composition. The sparkle and shine you have captured off the snow is wonderful! Thanks.

    One could read into this composition, Jean, as the Estonian boot kicking the Russians out... but sometimes a rain spout is just a rain spout, I suppose.

    Wonderful juxtaposition, and you have created a nice winter scene here - muted colors overall, making the reds and yellows of the cathedral really pop against the near monotone surroundings. Thanks!

    Took me a minute to find your secret garden, Paul, but I really like how you have presented this, looking uphill toward the houses, with only the palm in direct sunlight making the alley almost a window to another world. The street scene could be in a number of European cities, and the palm jumps out as seemingly out of place. And you caught a bird just above it too! Well captured.

    Very nice storytelling image here, Dwaipayan. Well framed with a strong POV, and the tone lightening as you get further from the lens suggests she is walking toward something brighter...

    What a gorgeous composition, Kasia. I took a shot not too dissimilar from this recently - a statue at twilight framed by a tree - but mine lacked that small detail of the fireball! An amazing feature, and one that really makes this an arresting shot, with its muted tones broken by the perfectly managed bright orange firelight. The result is a mythic tone that really jumps off the screen. Thanks!

    Hello Bev - glad you pointed out the wind turbines or I surely would have missed them. The Boston area will hopefully be getting our own wind farm soon, if it can escape shortsighted politics and fears. The presentation of the pier leading out toward them is great, with a strong zig zag leading the eye. This really is quite an impressive pier, we do not have many in the States that are anything like it.

    Hello Gert,

    I love the machismo here, especially from the man in the middle and his sure grin. The boys make a nice addition as well, acting it up for you and your camera.

    Thanks for your welcome back - I did not intend a long absence, but it seems to have become one!

    Hej Erling
    I wouldn't have expected to find a medieval tower in Bergen at all. The tower, bathed here in a pleasant light is delightful and the reflection in the water superbe.
    In two weeks time we will fly out to Norway, spending a few days at the Lofoten Islands. I know, crazy time to go there but the scenery must be stunning at this time of the year. With a bit luck we could even see some Auroras?

    The colonial influence is clearly visible in this imposing church. The staircase leading up towards the church is typical indian and leads the eye nicely up to the church.
    Very well framed and composed photo indeed.

    Hello Eric
    Although the Eiffel Tower has been photographed a million times, this certainly is one of the better examples. The light, casting a pleasant pastel hue on the scene, is delightful and the hustle and bustle of the city seem very distant in this calm scene.

    Hello Farhat
    Interesting insight in an indian custom of using peacock feathers as a sign of true love. The market scene is interesting as there is so much going on around the feather seller where she is the calming pool in the middle.

    Hello Will
    What a superb sight. Even for me as a Swiss that has taken the Grindelwald First cable car many times (all tough mostly in winter for skiing) this is a stunning sight. Shame on me, Bachalpsee has been on our radar for a hike for a couple of years now and we have never come around to it. But seing this picture it renews my plans to go there at last.

    Like the prow of a gigantic ship the sharp angle of this modern building is cutting trough the air, while the shadows mimic the shape of the building perfectly. Stunning architectural composition indeed.
